Testing, Growing, Praying, Kissing
(1 Thessalonians 5.19-28) The doctor has given you a complete physical and you sit in his office waiting to hear the verdict. He says, "Well, overall things look good; you're in pretty good shape. However, you blood pressure is a bit high and so is your cholesterol. You need to quit salting your ham and bacon, drink less pop, use less salt and eat more grains and vegetables." That's what's happening in our text. Paul believes this congregation is doing well; it's a healthy and robust congregation. So, like the doctor, he gives them a few recommendations for the church's continued health. Listen and find out what God tells the church what to do in order to achieve better spiritual health in Paul's closing remarks in 1 Thessalonians.
